Kyle Pitts News
Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts continues to frustrate fantasy players this season. After a strong performance in Week 3, the second-year tight end caught only one of his four targets for 25 yards in the 23-20 Week 4 win over the Cleveland Browns. The former Florida star has been a bust this season, averaging only five half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Unfortunately, fantasy players are stuck between a rock and a hard place with the tight end. He is too talented to bench or drop, yet he has scored under 20.5 total fantasy points this season. Hopefully, Pitts gets back on track next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts finally got going last week against the Seattle Seahawks. After scoring only 5.8 half-point PPR fantasy points over the first two weeks of the season, the second-year tight end scored 11.2 half-point PPR fantasy points last week. More importantly, the former Florida star had a team-high eight targets in the game. Marcus Mariota got Pitts the ball downfield last week as he had 52 air yards, the second-most among tight ends. The young star should keep up his strong play this week against the Cleveland Browns and remains a plug-and-play TE1.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts had back-to-back awful fantasy performances to start the year. However, the second-year tight end rebounded in the 27-23 Week 3 win over the Seattle Seahawks. He pulled in five receptions on eight targets for 87 receiving yards, leading the team in all three categories. Furthermore, the former Florida star had eight targets after having only three last week. While he failed to find the end zone, fantasy players have to feel confident as the star tight end scored 11.2 half-point PPR fantasy points against the Seahawks. After his strong performance, Pitts remains a plug-and-play TE1.
Many tight ends have a large learning curve to overcome in their rookie campaign. Not Pitts, who was able to have a 1,000-yard year in his first NFL season. Despite dealing with constant double coverage due to Atlanta's below-average receiving corps, Pitts managed to break the 50-yard mark in 10 games and the 100-yard barrier in three contests. His big fantasy flaw, however, was that he was unable to do much inside the red zone that turned into a trip to the end zone. Pitts was almost shut out...
